    Re: Accuquilt Go

    Thanks MsWindy for the link to the quiltcut thingie. I looked around their site and it is very interesting. Also, made a mental note that their cutting mats are not expensive compared to what I can find at Joann's. And if it is a thicker mat, even better.

    Will be waiting to see who gets what.

      You need a friend to cut for you. I would certainly help a friend cut out their quilt if it was difficult for them.

          I actually sell Accuquilt Go's in Australia, and am the cheapest in the country. I started this because I broke my back several years ago and had a stash just not doing anything. I wanted one, but they were $599 here! So I started my webshop and in a few months have a few customers returning to buy more dies. My GO cutter is $439, the Baby $189. I have read your complaints about hurting your shoulder... sometimes the fabric is too thick, even if it is cotton. I made a king size wedding ring quilt for my Step daughters wedding a few ago, with the two die set. I couldn't never have even attempted it without the accuquilt. Others cutters do slip, that wastes fabric too. I also do applique and I haven't wasted fabric yet. Check out the pics on the gallery on my website! The back was made with the leftover fabric!

            I quess it's a matter of what works for you;I have the acuquilt go and I love it especially for cutting strips. Like anything else it does take practice to achive minimum fabrice waste. There are several sites that you can goto to get more insight on the use of the accuquilt go; I especially like (b-quilt.com). Everytime I want a new die I do alittle research and been able to find them at good prices. Quilting warehouse has the best prices and I print out their price list and take it to my local Joann's and they will match their prices. SassyG

              I would agree with Karen - ask a friend or maybe a community organization to help you cut out quilt pieces. Maybe someone at your local shop can help.

              Norma - that is one Gorgeous quilt! I love the colors too!

Thanks so much!
                I have one and love it and I also have one for sale that is brand new for $175.00 plus postage, if interested.

                  I originally purchased the quiltcut machine and didn't like it....ended up broken fairly quickly...I use the Go cutter, with minimal waste and haven't had to replace anything yet...just my experience! Good luck with your searches....I use the Go cutter with width of fabric and have had no problems cutting that way even though they suggest cutting along the selvedge edge.
